Square root day

I had no idea when I woke up this morning that a holiday had dawned. National square root day.

It doesn't happen often. Nine times per century, in fact. The last time was February 2nd in 2002 (2-2-02). The next occurrence will be April 4th in 2016 (4-4-16). Get it?

Since I didn't learn about this holiday until late afternoon from my friends at Mitchell Printing in Batesburg, I missed most of it, celebrating without appropriate, well-planned fervor. So, what might appropriate, well-planned fervor involve?

How about, eating radishes cut into cubes. Square roots!
